Map layouts for regions

I have an idea for map layouts, where people put up their map layouts on the forum, possibly with its own file and then when you upload it to your regions, it could be a color-coded or outlined visible representation of the map so you can build the map without messing it up. Maybe, if you have the materials it could be auto placed and then you'd wait for it to be constructed.

Hey sirdrew,

I think the most likely thing to happen with regions is that eventually the entire region map will be proceedurally generated before you can even select a square to settle, creating islands, rivers, lakes, and continents that crisscross the whole map. The terrain in each grid-square would fit together smoothly, just as the pieces of a puzzle fit together smoothly. Bast may add the ability to create custom region maps, which would be awesome, but I think the default map should be procedurally generated.

I was more thinking towards the idea that if someone had a map of buildings and wanted to share it you could implement it without having to build all of the buildings, making it very easy to build resource maps.
